    I have gsa running with 5 projects, and I have it running on about 150 threads.
    just wondering if anyone has any data on how many proxies you need in relation to threads etc?

    i currently have only 10 private proxies, but have no idea what the limit would be for those proxies, and how I would even know if that was/wasn't enough?

    I also don't know exactly which is the best suitable settings of proxies and threads. But I always use public proxies for harvesting/scraping the urls and private proxies for submission. Although I've 10 proxies set to 100 threads.

    You should ask your proxy provider how many simultaneous connections are those proxies capable.

    I'm using 20 private proxies with GSA but I never use more than 100 connections since that's the top limit of my proxies.

    Thanks, I didn't think about it like that but it makes sense.
    i was think more of how many queries per ip could I do to sites/ engines without getting the ip blocked.

    but anyway, I might lower my threads based on what you have said, until I can afford more proxies :)

    If you are looking for the limit then proxies usually allow 100 threads each so the limit shouldn't be an issue. The speed might though. I run 120 threads with 10 proxies but I am not going at full throttle. How much ram does your vps have?

    Thanks for the info.
    I'm running gsa on a VM running on my dedicated server.
    have 32gb ram total :) but just 8gb allocated to my gsa VM at the moment, although it currently only uses about 250mb at any one time.

    having said that, gsa is only building a few thousand links per day for me.

    Usually 1 proxy can handle 100 threads, that's MAX.
    I run GSA with 40 proxies and 400 threads on my VPS.
